. a little more than four years ago i stood with mr. tim geithner and announced him as my first nominee to my cabinet. we were barely two months into the financial crisis, the stock market had cratered, the housing market had cratered as well. bank after bank was on the verge of collapse and worst of all more than 800,000 americans would lose their jobs in just that month. and the bottom was not yet in sight. so, i couldn't blame tim when he tried to tell me he wasn't the right guy for the job. but i knew that tim's extensive experience with economic policy made him imminently qualified and i also knew that he could hit the ground running. as chairman of the new york federal reserve he had just spent several sleepless and chaotic weeks immersed in the complexity of the crisis and had been working closely with his republican predecessor at treasury to save the financial system. then, with the wreckage of our economy still smoldering and unstable, i asked him to help put it back together. thanks in large part to his steady hand, our economy has been growing again for the past three years, our b

of staff jack lew of management and budget is considered to be tim geithner's most likely successor and that's deputy national security adviser denis mcdonough. anything could change, but those could be the most likely picks. other members of the administration suggest they're heading for the exits and you would assume the stuff starts ranking up in the next week or so. lisa jackson announced her departure at the end of january and rebecca blank who took over in june after secretary bryson went on medical leave. also expected to leave ray lahood and ken salazar and steven chu. likely with appointments of lew and mcdonough you'll hear more voices demanding more diversity in that cabinet, if you will. how does the president end up solving that problem and create a cabinet that, "looks like america." >>> all right, picking a fight over the president's pentagon pick. one thing the left and the right can agree on. chuck hagel may have an uphill battle in the senate. next, we'll get the view from both sides. former romney campaign adviser dan seymour and dan clemens will be here for a deb

future. i'll ask the co-chair for the campaign to fix the debt what lies ahead. >>> and report that tim geithner will leave before that battle has many wondering how that could affect the economy. >>> if you think hillary's departure of the secretary of state will leave the country without a clinton on center stage, think again. >>> and "office politics." i talk to al roker from everything from the fiscal cliff to the first one-on-one he scored with the president after his short inauguration. good morning, welcome to "weekends with alex witt." we have front page politics. with the fiscal cliff deal behind us, president obama is turning his attention to the next battle in today's weekly address, the debt ceiling. >> one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they already wracked up. if congress refuses to give the united states the ability to pay its bill on time, consequences for the entire global economy could be catastrophic. >> meanwhile, during a closed door meeting on friday, john boehner told members of the gop conference he plans

, to replace treasury secretary tim geithner. a sign the white house expects a big fight over the federal budget lew is the safe pick. he has been confirmed twice by the senate before. just in this administration. if confirmed in time, he can face his first test next month over the debt ceiling. lew is a walk among walks. described in one profile by the huffington post. quote, as harry potter grew up and replaced his magic wand with excel spread sheets. if confirmed lew will be the highest ranking orthodox you don't in government. he grew up in queens. brings his own lunch to work. chose sandwich and an apple which he eats at his desk and still commutes back and forth to new york. catching a train home every friday to spend weekends with his wife. he is well liked in the white house. the p came to depend to the act not many people in washington know the budgeting process. >> jack's economic advice has been invaluable and he has my complete trust both because of his mastery of the numbers but because of the values behind those numbers. >> lew is a progressive whose interests in politics be

. >> well, there is some hope. tim geithner had a messy signature in his past, but on the bill it's completely legible. looks like alexander hamilton. >>> next, aig has thought better about suing the federal government over the terms of the 2008 bank bailout. yes, the same taxpayer funded bailout that brought them $200 billion and saved them from bankruptcy. anyway, before the news of the potential lawsuit, aig launched an ad campaign thanking taxpayers for the bailout money. in light of the planned lawsuit, conan o'brien offered an alternative. >> aig, we said we were going to turn it around, and we did. >> we're now leaner and focused on what we do best. >> a profit of more than $22 billion. >> we turned it around. >> [ bleep ] you, america. >> [ bleep ] you, america. >> [ bleep ] you, america. >> from all of us at aig, seriously america, go [ bleep ] yourselves. >> it's tough to see how they even toyed with the idea of a lawsuit against the same government that saved them from bankruptcy. >>> next, if you're in congress and planning to oppose the next round of victims of hurric

be on all u.s. currency. here it is loopy and arguably unreadable. current treasury secretary tim geithner said he had a similar problem before he took over. here it is before he took the job. and here what it looks like now. he improved his penmanship to make it easier for folks to read. i can't argue. have you seen mine? martha: it deteriorates with every passing year. bill: jack lew that --. martha: well it is the worst flu outbreak in at least a decade and doing a number on people across the country. the virus is reported in 41 states with nine states reporting high or severe levels of flu. boston's mayor says his city is under siege. he is declaring a public health emergency. the state of massachusetts reporting 18 flu-related deaths so far. the hospitals can barely contain all the people pouring into them. >> we're seeing significant rates of hospitalization, much more serious than we've seen in the last two years. martha: molly line live from boston. molly, what can you tell us and i hope you have had a flu shot? >> reporter: i have had a flu shot actually. there have been 700 cases

tim geithner is going to leave possibly by the end of the month, which means ahead of all of the debt ceiling talks. do you think that would hurt the economy if he's not there to be the one to help sort of, i don't know, keep everything on balance? >> i do worry a little bit about this. there's no clear person who would have been named if he's leaving at the end of the month. the name tossed around most commonly is jack lew. but he's not a clear candidate yet at least. secretary geithner has been very instrumental in talking to the congress for the last couple years about the budget and about the debt ceiling. he was very involved in 2011. he's obviously been very involved the last couple of months. if he leaves, i think we could -- it really depends who takes over for him. but i think we're -- i think we're looking at a lot of big issues to face before march and so it's really going to come down to who that person is that takes over. >> yeah, certainly. have to talk a little bit of football because we always talk about the commercials and the super bowl and how much money they bring

will be replaced by who knows. tim geithner is out. he'll be replaced by a guy, jack lew, the guy who, if you've been watching the tv over the last day or so, jack lew is the guy who signs his name with what surely looks like a slinky. >>brian: front page "where are the women?" they take a picture and talk about the cabinet of the administration. all the women are being replaced by men. white men too on top of that. let me show you a picture in "the new york times." all we see is valerie jar rhett's leg -- valerie jarrett's leg. >>steve: on december 29 that is the pr-z meeting with ten guys and they're talking about the fiscal cliff. >>brian: could they back up a little. >>gretchen: this is a picture they released the day after, i believe. and you can see valerie jarrett front and center facing the president. then there are two other women who are in the photos. was it a reaction to that original picture? brian, you bring up a good point that there are no minorities -- there's one, i think, in that original picture. it is an interesting discussion because there was so much made in this last p
